"starting point" begins right now. >>> hi, everybody. welcome. "starting point" this morning is george zimmerman in his own words. this morning the man that shot and killed trayvon martin sat down for his first television interview. it happened last night on fox news. zimmerman said what happened was all god's plan. >> do you regret getting out of the car to follow trayvon that night. >> no, sir. >> do you regret you had a gun that night? >> no, sir. >> do you feel you wouldn't be here for this interview if you didn't have that gun? >> no, sir. >> you feel you would not be here? >> i feel that it was all god's plan and for me to second guess it or judge it -- >> is there anything you might do differently in retrospect now that time has passed a little bit? >> no, sir. >> joining us this morning criminal defen
that strange to the congress. >> well, then give us some assurance. tell us that behind the scenes at least there's some constructive conversation going on about how to deal with this fiscal cliff before we go over it. >> well, i believe that the budget priorities committee, the committee on budget priorities and policies, they have said to us that this is not really a cliff in the common sense of the word, but more like a slope because i do believe that even after the elections, there is plenty enough time for us to come back here in a lame duck and do what is necessary to extend budgetary considerations for at least a year while we'll have time to really work on things we need to do. and that is to have the massive overhaul of our tax code. i think that we're in the trouble we're in today not so much because of people's priorities but because we have a problem with our tax code that needs to be fixed. i think that's what's important about that vote today. >> but, congressman, that approach of, we'll all get together and work together after the election, someday never seems to come. you we

of the stand your graund law. you can't run after somebody and stand your ground and use deadly force. it is also an issue before the jury trial, a judge can decide this issue in florida. it is huge. obviously he talked to his lawyer and he has to be careful about what he says about whether he followed trayvon martin. it is the pivotal issue pretrial and if he gets to trial. >> his attorney says they may not use stand your ground. they may just use a basic self-defense. here is another chunk with sean hannity and he has before you hear this chunk he has described in great detail about the fight and the wrestle for the gun. >> uh-huh. >> do you remember when you yourself reached for your weapon? do you remember that moment? >> yes, sir. >> how was that? >> at that point i realized that it wasn't my gun, it wasn't his gun, it was the gun. >> i feel like there was some point that he was trying to make, i wasn't sure that i fully understood it. what message was that supposed to be about not my gun but the gun? >> well, exactly. keep in mind in the first court appearance he said he didn't
been worse. >> it could have been worse, and tell us ho it is worse for particular groups, because it is an uneven recovery here. >> it is very uneven. it is uneven across the sectors and part of the problem is that we get one sector of the economy engaged and the other sector is not, and vice versa, and uneven across the groups. with see the particular time when we look at for example whites, their unemployment remains the same. and latinos remains the same, but among african-americans, it increased significantly from 13.6% to 14.4%, so there is a lot of unevenness in this economy. >> which sekers to benefited here, because it seems that the kinds of jobs that people have are in service industries and temporary and not well paying jobs and not a lot of job security. >> you are exactly right, suzanne. they are in temporary help services with si t s wits which increase in jobs. and now looking at the reverse of that and where we would have liked to have seen the jobs created is in construction and only 2,000 jobs there because construction almost one-third of the workers who were di
to make sure that we are using for example the small business review process to ensure that the rules ask crafted can ease compliance where necessary especially with respect to smaller firms. smaller firms be they depositories jarmon depositories are by their nature less able to easily shoulder significant compliance costs tend to be more fixed than variable which means to the extent it firm is smaller on the compliance board and would be more biting and constraining and so the basic to make sure we are attentive as applied to the various regulatory requirements. >> which is one of my concerns. i keep getting that feedback from our small banks and credit unions about the compliance costs with the new rules coming out. within this efp, those are dillinger of disclosure issues as well as other disclosure forms. are you all communicating so when qr m comes out we are not going to have different ways of compliance issues for the small banking institutions? are you all talking together so it's going to be very fluid and we and are not going to have one rule come out but would then be modified
bragging that he could do it, but it was also a warning to us. what if the next time that happens it's a larger utility or a group of smaller utilities around the country, maybe water, maybe electricity, maybe gas, and this time they're not just warning us or showing us our vulnerability but they're actually going to disrupt the flow of electricity or water to people who depend on it. that's -- that's the kind of crisis that we face and why it is so urgent that we deal with this. so let me come back to my dream. my goal here is that as we go on this week, we're able to submit a manager's amendment, but it's not just from the managers, senators collins, rockefeller, feinstein and i. we're joined by a much broader group and we form a broad bipartisan consensus here to protect our country from a terrible danger that is real, urgent and growing. mr. president, i always like to -- i was thinking about it again in this case -- think back in these moments. since i don't see anybody else on the floor, i will undulling myself and go back to a hot july day in philadelphia -- indulge myself and
from the depths of ocean. it is all "happening now." jenna: hi, everybody, we're glad your with us on a very busy news day. i'm jenna lee. we have brand new fox news polls on the election, on the economy and who voters would like to see on the republican ticket with governor mitt romney. jon: i'm jon scott. 110 days until americans head to the polls. what are we thinking about the state the race and issues affecting it right now? first when asked whether the obama administration has made the economy better or worse, 37% of respondents say the president's policies have made the economy better. that is a seven-point drop from march. meanwhile those who say the economy has gotten worse, jumping seven points over that same period to 49%. look at the head-to-head race. the president with a razor thin lead over governor romney. nearly unchanged from a year ago. that is not all these polls tell us. erin mcpike is national political reporter for "real clear politics" and joins us now. erin, see if you can explain that. you have more people saying the president and his policies have made th
to tell us what he is doing to combat violence in his city. and also, we will be joined by a panel to talk about aids. and we are talking about jobs, j j jobs, jobs, and the employers are not hiring enough to bring down the latest figures. you see that 80,000 new jobs were added last month but the labor unemployment rate remai remairemains 8.2%, and that is because of the jobs added in may. it is a different picture from the jobsarlier in the year. now president obama and mitt romney are talking about it. >> our mission is not to get back to where we were before the crisis, and we have to get back to what has been happening in the last decades, because jobs leaving our shores and we have to struggle to fight for. >> now is the time for america to choose whether they want more of the same and whether unemployment over 8% month after month after month is satisfactory or not. it does not have to be this way. america can do better and this kick in the gut has got to end. >> i want to break down the good news and the bad news of the latest jobs report. we are joined by danny from georgia tech,
and that often kills them. to put a little close on this and a chance for us to converse, what is fascinating is the degree of duality in the great executive we studied. for example, is it 20 mile marching or defining moment in their capacity to do both? 20 mile marches with discipline and superb performance in a defining luck event moments that are out of their control. why did they do so much better? in the book, we noticed that over time, great executives will recall people had the genius of "and"as opposed to the tyranny of "or." it is humility and will. it is confront the brutal facts and having faith. it is productive and paranoid. when we stand back and look at a truly great enterprise, we see a huge duality under any great enterprise. that is what we call, preserved because for and stimulate progress - the core and stimulate progress. no great company exists if it does not have a core or stimulates progress. they are willing to change their practices, their strategies, there structures without compromising core values. they understand the difference between their core values and their

few people really know where the idea came from for the statue, so give us some insight into how it came into being. >> it came into being in france in the middle of the 19th century. it was 1865 right after the assassination of abraham lincoln, and a group of french people behind the radio were a emotionally tied to the united states. they love the american form of government, and they were abolitionists, so they have a particular affection for president lincoln, so they came together at the home of a man who was friends's leading specialist on the united states. smoke-filled died in 1859, -- toquevill died in 1859, so a group of guys got together, and the idea was to try to come up with a way of commemorating the life achievement to celebrate the victory of the north in the civil war and to make a critical on their own government. france had an authoritarian government run by napoleon iii, and it was a government that was friendly to liberty. they tried to put these together to commemorate abraham lincoln and a way of being critical to the government and so the ideath it, was t

states according to u.s. authorities. this security camera from the airport in bulgaria shows a young man with long hair, it could be a wig, pacing nervously back and forth inside the airport. he is dressed like a tourist. the explosives were reportedly if his backpack. u.s. authorities are cooperating with the bulgarians and the israelis to try and figure out who was behind the attack that left five israeli tourists dead. israel's prime minister blamed iran, its defense minister blamed hezbollah which just yesterday released and posted on their web site a graphic description of how iran's revolutionary guard would go about closing the strait of hormuz by targeting u.s. aircraft carriers in the persian gulf. it was provided to us by the middle east media research insert. the bulgarians and israelis are in touch, we're told, with president obama's top national security adviser, john brennan, about the attack in bulgaria. megyn? megyn: jennifer, thank you. >>> well, coming up, what if israel does retaliate? in our next hour, we're going to sit down with ambassador dan gillerman who will wal

that came out this morning and that is retail sales? >> terrible. martha: what does that tell us about what is going on? >> it is a terrible number. sales in june declined .5%. that is huge decline and unexpected. it tells us the economy is clearly weakening. in may retail sales were down. june retail sales were down some more. and a new survey out of national economists and they say hiring is weakening all over again. so too are the sales figures which we just reported. they have a negative outlook. in fact, most of them are looking for growth rate in the economy of 2% or less. and that is not a solid performance. martha: yeah. there are so many indicators out there, stuart, as you point out that we're hitting yet another rough patch. >> yes, we are. martha: in the economy. stuart, thank you very much. good to see you as always this morning. bill: stuart was talking about the survey released by the national association of business economics. it says u.s. jobs growth appears worse than three months ago. of 67 economists surveyed, only 22% reported rising employment in july. that is down fro
